Yup, that's what I meant. I usually use a window since the smaller size reduces the level of pixelation and blockiness (for games with sprite backgrounds), but the clutter of the wallpaper and windowss icons are somewhat distracting.
hmm, well, as far as i know with the hw plugins you cant do that.
i remember there was a software out there that created letterboxing back in the day before DVD playing programs scaled to fullscreen...but that really isnt what you need.
you could get a black desktop wallpaper and then right click -->arrange icons by--->show desktop icons (uncheck)
orrrrr just deal with it.
OR if you're really feeling ballsy, and you really care about it, go talk to Pete! no, i'm serious! he just added in some new stretching modes to his OGL2 plugin--at user request. so go to his forums, make a request for something like that, and see if Pete can work it in. hey, it's worth a shot.
